International design experts from more than 20 countries chose this year’s iF Design Award winners from a total of 7,298 entries from 56 countries. MAN has announced that its Lion’s City E has been revealed as a Gold Award winner in the ‘Automobiles/Vehicle/Bikes’ category, to be presented at a ceremony in Berlin on 4 May. “Compared to last year, the number of entries increased by around 1,000. With that in mind, we can take even greater pleasure from the fact that the MAN Lion’s City E came out on top – and won an iF Gold Award to boot,” said Rudi Kuchta, Head of Business Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus. “Once again, our design team has put in an incredible shift. With this latest success story, they have brought us one step closer to becoming the number one supplier in the European city bus segment. This also rings true with what many customers say: that the MAN city bus is the most beautiful city bus on the market.”

The judging panel acknowledged the ergonomically and aesthetically pleasing design of the electric bus, saying: “In terms of the exterior of the vehicle, we were impressed by the front end with its brand-specific headlights, not to mention the use of glass surfaces and modular body parts.” It continued: “The interior of the vehicle is characterised by glistening high-quality materials and a modern colour scheme that is reflected even in the minutest details.”
